Do note - we were the original retailer - this was the last 507uxII imported to the USA - long time customer upgrade to 509X. His 507 packaging was discarded accidently. The new 509X is the same chassis size as the 507 so this is the packaging used. Other than that, all original.
The L-507uXII features the New LECUA 1000 attenuator and a discretely configured buffer circuit as well as the Version 4.0 ODNF (Only Distortion Negative Feedback) original feedback circuit to achieve spatial expression, overwhelming power and clarity that is comparable to a separate amplifier.
The new LECUA1000 (Luxman Electronically Controlled Ultimate Attenuator) is the most important part of the pre-amplifier section and handles volume adjustment of sound signals at micro levels. A computerized attenuator, the LECUA1000 is an integral part of the amplifier circuit and performs in the same way as the high-end C-900u LUXMAN control amplifier. A direct connection between the attenuator circuit and amplification circuit is made to minimize the signal transmission route and improve efficiency. This type of design is insensitive to external vibration, eliminates any change in sound quality depending on the position and durable so that it will not decline with the passage of time.
LUXMAN’s original ODNF (Only Distortion Negative Feedback) amplification feedback circuit features a fast-primary slew rate and an ultra-wide bandwidth that is achieved through the feedback of distortion components only from the amplification output circuit. This results in a dramatic enhancement of accuracy in distortion detection, lower impedance and a higher S/N ratio due to a parallel first stage and Darlington connected second stage of the amplification circuit, as well as a 3-parallel first stage error detection circuit. This type of circuit can achieve high power ratings that are comparable to a separate amplifier and has the force to drive various speaker systems to deliver high grade sound reproduction.
The highly stable power supply of the L-507uXll consists of a large capacity EI-core type power transformer and 4 pieces of customized 10,000 μF capacitor blocks. This ensures an instantaneous, constant and stable current that will deliver sound dynamism.
The L-507uXII features a discrete, embedded buffer circuit mounted on the output stage of the pre-amplifier circuit that is equivalent to the type used in the high-end C-900u. This helps to protect the purity of the audio signal while enhancing the drive force of the power amplifier unit.
Large-capacity, low resistance speaker relays are connected in parallel to enable lossless transmission for the powerful driving force that is generated by the large-scale output circuit. The damping factor has been improved from 205 to 260 by directly connecting to the speaker terminals, enabling a dynamic sound expression.
To realize a smooth, stress free signal transmission LUXMAN use an original Beeline construction that is a non-angled wiring pattern to allow the signal transmission to take the shortest optimal route. OFC wires are used in the internal wiring to achieve a natural signal transmission due to the spiral wrap shielding on each core and non-plating process on the core wire.
The L-507uXII is equipped with a high-quality phono amplifier that is compatible with MM/MC cartridges. This model offers all the functions that a high quality integrated amplifier should offer such as bass/treble tone control, LR balance adjustment using LECUA, pre/power separation function, volume function and headphone output.
Gradation cast iron legs that are used for the LUXMAN 900 series separate amplifier are fitted to eliminate resonance for the L-507uXII, taking thorough countermeasures against vibration. The solid loopless chassis with horough grounding adds to the structural stability and therefore sound quality.
